Insights & resources
Today’s fragmented supply chains and sophisticated food crimes mean food authenticity is under constant threat. We understand the scale and complexity of the challenge and can help you protect consumers and your business.
Consumers expect product labels to be accurate. And you want to be sure that your chosen food or ingredients match the agreed specifications. Our targeted, analytical food authenticity tests give you the reassurance you need.
We can verify the authenticity of a wide range of ingredients and products including:
Meat and fish
We can detect the DNA of up to 20 different species of meat and 50 species of fish at extremely low threshold levels.
Premium oils (including olive oil, evening primrose oil, walnut oil and almond oil)
Our food authenticity analysis helps to protect you against low grade substitutions and adulteration.
We look at carbohydrate ratio to determine whether a coffee matches the specification or has been bulked up with something else.
Using DNA testing techniques, we can validate the source of milk in cheese and other dairy products.
Cannabidiol (CBD) purity
By quantifying CBD levels against specifications and screening for minor cannabinoids, our expert analysis can confirm the purity of material and levels of actives.
We are recognised as a Centre of Expertise in food authenticity testing by DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).
